Lightly Child, Lightly.

Some days I wish I could go back in life.

Not to change anything, but to feel a few things twice.

  7. To feel a few things twice … that would be okay if you could pick and choose, but you sure wouldn’t want to repeat some of the dentist visits or unhappy moments twice. Happy times, yes, but you can always make new happy times.

  13. I was even more captivated by the study on ‘goose bumps at will’…..
    Now, could anybody PLEASE invent something that makes mosquitos NOT dive for me when I’m peacefully sitting outside with a glass of wine, some candles, trying to talk to HH??? Within 5’ my hands and arms were covered in tiny,, tiny bite bumps….. which had me scratching all night.

    PS: HH says that ‘I’m a gift to any social gathering’ because it’s always me who gets bitten and nobody else ;(
